immigrant survivors on their journeys to safety and justice
The Tahirih Justice Center is a national nonprofit organization that serves immigrant women, girls, and other survivors fleeing gender-based violence. By amplifying the experiences of survivors, Tahirih aims to create a world in which all people share equal rights and live in safety and with dignity.
A Note from Archi Pyati,
Tahirih Justice Center CEO
Looking back at what we accomplished in 2022 together — the clients, staff, and supporters of the Tahirih Justice Center — I’m so proud.
Tahirih supported more than 2,400 immigrant women, girls, and other survivors of gender-based violence on their road to safety and justice. We offered free legal representation, helped individuals and families find housing and mental health services, provided cash assistance, convened survivors in discussions about policy change, and fought for laws that represent our values. Together, we sought equality, justice, and fairness because every single one of us deserves to live in safety and with dignity.
We also rose to the occasion when thousands of Afghan women arrived in the U.S. without a pathway to stable legal status. And we helped prevent thousands of child marriages, ensuring children across the country avoid negative outcomes that disproportionately impact girls and further gender inequality in America.
Our goal is to ensure that all of us—no matter where we were born—have an opportunity to live a life without violence.
We are inspired by women like Mya, who finally received her green card after 34 years. She says, “Because of you all, I get to be with my son and live a normal life from now on.”
Thank you for continuing to show up for survivors of gender-based violence and their families. I am grateful every day that we share in the belief that we can build a better world together.
